SPRINGDALE (KFSM)– A Springdale woman was living the dream after appearing on a popular game show Monday night (Mar.30th).

Amanda Tracy was a contestant on Wheel of Fortune, which airs on Channel 5.

Tracy is a teacher at Shaw Elementary in Springdale. She recently moved to the area and says she applied for the show online ten times before getting the opportunity to make an appearance.

Amanda ended up winning some big bucks, even a brand new car! She made it all the way to the final round, but unfortunately couldn’t solve the final puzzle.

5NEWS spoke with Tracy about her experience. She says, “I love watching (Wheel of Fortune) now because I know what happens during commercial breaks, and I know what happens throughout the day to get the contestants ready.” Tracy adds, “It was the best experience and if I could do it again, I’d do it in a heartbeat!”

The episode was taped last month in California.
